Re: So lets go back to High School Sex Education.

Repeatedly, research has shown that the abstinence-only cirricula is not effective at preventing/delaying sexual activity. Teen's attitudes change for a short time after the instruction, but actual behavior does not change.

I believe that, in all areas of life, to make wise decisions, one must be truly informed. That would apply to sex as well.

But it makes many parents feel good. That way they don't have to address the problem themselves and ignore it.

i think objectivity is a goal - not something that is achieved by any news or academic organization - everyone/thing has a point of view...

tell me, what news organization does not hold a particular point of view?

Fox News, of course. They say that they are fair and unbiased.

At least Fox shows the liberal and conservative point of view. The NY times is pure leftist garbage.

Perhaps they should aim a bit more indirectly. They could work on improving
math and science education, and encourage joining the chess and debate
clubs.

I found "geekiness" to be very successul in promoting high school abstinence
for myself.

By convincing Fox that you can portray a totally brainless liberal who will reinforce the stereotype they want to convey.
